A Death Head mini featuring Super Head..now thats an instant seller.
I guess i'll just keep waiting in the hope that one day we'll see Death's Head, Dark Angel and Immortalis again.
What's this? A double post?

oh hell yeah!!!
big fan of the Original Death's Head, especially his second look, yes?
Furman and Senior (and Hitch et al) just killed that series ~ I've still got the Incomplete Death's Head, but sadly when i was a teenager all of my oversized Marvel Graphic novels got stolen at a summer camp i went too and i lost the awesome Death's Head one...
He was kind of interesting but he was sort of like dethlok, in that I didnt know what the F*** was going on with all the different ones running around and stuff. Kind of like terror inc, he wasnt to bad but I didnt really care if I saw him again.
I'd love to see Cornell rework the entire Marvel UK line of characters, much like Ellis has done with the New Universe. There's a lot of untapped potential in these characters and Cornell could ahve a field day with them if given a chance.
Death's head was great. You guys need to check out transformers falling angel.
It's pretty good and has death's head beating up galvatron.
Death's head was in avengers forever also. Whats neat about death's head is he crossed over with both transformers and dr who (who shrunk him to human size and sent him to the 616 universe were he meet the fantastic four.)
Marvel needs to use him again. I could see him in a great lakes avengers crossover or in avengers Initiative.
i did not like the original death's head because he was too annoying yes? death's head ii was awesome though. i actually liked a few of the old marvel UK series. super soliders was my favorite. shame the line was cancelled before the end of the arc saw print
he does seems like the type of character Dn'A would dust off and pull out...
Although, I did find a sacrilegious folder of clipped out Combat Colin strips from Transformers and Action Force. Those are getting Blogged at some point.
Might have to pick up that trade for DH alone.
But how anybody could find Death's Head irritating? You are being hasty with your lack of respect. YES?
While there were parts of DH2 which I felt weren't right (Mostly whenever he appeared in somebody else's book) I loved where Abnett and Sharp were going with the character. If you made it as far as Death's Head Gold, at the very end of the Marvel UK line (The story was never finished as Marvel US closed the offices down as emergency cost-cutting in the CRASH), you'll get a much better idea where he WAS going. That story showed us a damaged DH2, on a desolate alien world, arguing with his 107 other personalities for control of his body. This new multiple-personality quirk very much got to showcase Death's Head's own personal rhetoric and speech style conflicting with others, and was a really nice touch.
I'd love to read some more of THAT.
but the greatness of DH is since by nature he's a time-and dimension-traveling character, you can pretty much use whichever version strikes your fancy, yes?
How might she have managed to compile a list of such beings? Well, in DnA's Nova, in 2008, she is currently working on a 'Project MINION' at Project PEGASUS, along with Nova's younger brother. During the Skrull invasion, in order to repair the Worldmind they placed it into the systems for Necker's Project MINION. The Worldmind, of course, has exactly the kind of knowledge of the history of the whole Universe to date that Necker would be looking for.
If DnA are still writing Nova by the time we reach into 2010 expect there to be a story about Evelyn Necker defecting to AIM and switching on the Minion Construct. Death's Head II might yet be reborn in this timeline.
i always wanted to read a lot more of the marvel uk stuff but i cant find any collections anywhere.
